An Altrincham-based architectural practice has undergone a management buy-out with the existing management team acquiring the company from its founder.
Mark Massey, Ewen Miller and Andy Lightfoot, directors at Calderpeel Architects on Church Street, have taken control of the RIBA-Chartered practice from founder Harry Calder.
The practice delivers a wide range of projects across several sectors but is best known for its work in the high-end and complex residential markets.
Among its current projects are Salboy’s ongoing residential scheme at Castle Irwell in Salford.
Ewen Miller, managing partner at Calderpeel Architects, said: “Harry established the business over 30 years ago and has worked hard with ourselves over the last 20 to develop the business to where it is today.
“We are a very tight-knit and connected team committed to continuing this development, supporting our fantastic past and existing clients whilst simultaneously building on our strong legacy. The structural ownership of the practice may have changed, but Harry will continue to play a key role.
“Undoubtedly there will be a continued change in practice culture that we have been driving for the last few years which looks to move the practice forward by nurturing our staff, enabling the next generation of designers and working closely with like-minded professionals to create opportunities.
"This also includes the exciting appointment of Lucy Lomas as a non-executive director who will be instrumental in assisting us in evolving our strategic vision for the future.”
